That's about my reaction.

Who posts their fantasy of him being a lederhosen-clad ogre-hunter on a site other than Archive of Our Own? Who the fuck looks at Johnson and sees the Ubermensch?

otoh the mental image of BoJo's wiggling feet sticking out of an ogre's mouth is a pretty pleasant one.

I've had a Twitter account for like 12 years and virtually never used it or followed anyone. It was just a couple months ago, when I was in Washington DC for a training, that Sandy mentioned Viking Moose was on Twitter but no other social media, and I was like "shit, I gotta figure out this Twitter thing after all"

and here I am

I haven't said anything to him directly yet*, but we are Twitter friends!

* I'm having an embarrassingly difficult time figuring out how one-on-one exchanges work. I keep trying to comment and share like on Facebook.

I would be curious to see the source of this graph. It just says "Gallup", but I have trouble believing that about 20% of Americans think that drinking alcohol is morally wrong or that 45% think that wearing fur is wrong.

2002 seems like another universe from that survey. I lived it and it didn't seem that different. Nearly 50% split on moral permissibility of divorce? In 2002?

Over the course of my life I can definitely "feel" the change in LGBT, drug and gambling consensuseses. I would have guessed divorce was about the same.
